UNIT: Culture (Human Geography)
MATERIALS: Cultures Around the World: Choice Pathway Project (Word Document with hyperlinks embedded)
DESCRIPTION: Students are provided with 'voice and choice' - choosing to conduct a scaffolded inquiry into a relevant element of culture (either school lunch or cell phone etiquette). Students complete a research framework complete with a hyperlink to the appropriate website for each topic and use this information to complete a graphic organizer with evidence. Afterwards, students are tasked with constructing a presentation which serves a persuasive argument for their findings.
